I think the right side is still the biggest necessity for the o-line. Jason Campbell signed with the Bears to back up Cutler. If the Seahawks are checking out Henne, I think that means they're out on Flynn. Tarvaris/Henne/Portis. Hopefully we don't get rid of Portis... Red resigns though. Thank god. If we resign M-Rob, and sign Mario that's probably just about all of our money.

It's starting to look like great defense, and questionable QB again. That kind of sucks :(.

I really wish people would learn the difference between resign and re-sign. Holy hell lol.

Also, I think Henne is underrated, and he can win games. He's been given the shaft. I think he would actually be an upgrade over TJack.

so my thinking about matt flynn

dolphins - just traded brandon marshall the main reason to go there besides money

Browns - have no weapons on offense besides peyton hillis and i dont think he(Hillis) will return. only reason to go Money!

Seahawks - we have the money the Oline,RB,WR's,TE and a great coaching staff literally no reason not to sign here besides not giving up money

but honestly we will give him the best chance to be a top QB in the NFL if he's smart he comes here! we got everything he needs to excel!

Except Schneider is smart with his money he isn't going to break the bank for Flynn if the Dolphins fail at getting Manning they will drive his price up and he will be a Dolphin imo.

I think you're looking at it from the completely wrong angle. Matt Flynn needs to sell the Seahawks, not the other way around.

I used to respect him but he just blatantly shows his hate for the 'Hawks and doesn't give a damn.

On another note, Marcus McNeill is a free agent. I think because of injuries he may retire (rumors). But if not, he would be an amazing signing for us if he can play RT. Has anyone heard about this? Last season we were going crazy over signing him or V-Jack.

The Chad Henne to Seattle rumors are over, because he signed in not Seattle (Jacksonville). Matt Flynn is due here tomorrow for a visit, Steve Hutchinson was here today, and apparently Jason Jones is either here or going to be here soon. TE Visanthe Shiancoe will visit Seattle, and apparently John Clayton was on the phone with Curtis Lofton's agent when good ole' Johnny Boy Schneider called.

released Gallery Re-signed Paul McQuistan

About Jason Jones

Interesting comparison betwn FA DL Jones + Coples. Both play DE + DT. Jones quicker laterally better pass rusher, Coples stronger at point.

Coples will be 1st rd pick, Jones was not. There were times Jones looked outstanding as pass rusher. Never gained consistency. Why he's FA.

On the surface of things, you'd like him to have more than four sacks (we don't recognize half sacks,) but as we always say, there's more to life than sacking the QB. There weren't many better than Jones at putting pressure on the quarterback. The former First Team All-MAC performer was getting pressure on 9.17% of all defensive plays (eighth among defensive tackles,) proving more than a handful for interior linemen who couldn't deal with his explosiveness.

To some degree, this would be expected. Carrying less weight than most defensive tackles, he should be flying past the comparably sluggish guards and centers of the NFL. Conversely, you'd also expect him to be driven out of running lanes on a regular basis because he is so keen on getting up the field, but that didn't happen.

Aggressive enough to penetrate, but disciplined enough not to sacrifice his run responsibilities, Jones ended the year with a positive grade in run defense. From being one of the worst run defenders we'd ever seen in his rookie year, Jones was ranked in our top twenty just two seasons later. That he did it without his pass rushing missing a beat (he earned our highest grade for a DT in pass rushing), is a testament to his development."

My freshman year my wrestling partner was a Senior, and he had storys about DeCastro in High School. He said the guy was just a monster. My wrestling partner was a mammoth. About 6'2, 320. He had to cut weight to wrestle. He said that the best guy on the team, our C, dominated people. He was always reliable to hold his own. But DeCastro would through him down like a ragdall. He also said that the guy was book smart, like SUPER smart but wasn't sure if he was all there. Lol

I think we just changed a need to guard on this team for sure though. Looks like Gallery is officially a bust.

Hey so who do you guys think is a better prospect? Claiborne or Patrick Patterson.

Well, as an LSU student, I've been lucky enough to see both in person. Claibourne isn't the physical specimen that Peterson is, but he's more technically sound and his body control is better as well (comes from being a converted WR). Both are quality return men, but Peterson has the edge there (even though Claibourne is an underrated one) Tough to choose one over the other...

The only way Flynn signs with the Hawks is if Miami gets Manning. Dolphins will give him starter money.

edit: not to mention that if he comes to Seattle he has to fight with T-jack for starting job. In Miami i think he becomes the favourite to start. He knows the system.

DT Jones or DE/DT Langford, ILB Lofton, OLB Woodyard (age 25) (or OLB Henderson) ,QB Flynn , TE Shiancoe are the guys id like to see the seahawks sign, maybe another T and another DE (wimbley if he is released like expected)

what about a guy like Tracy Porter at CB? I know hes not really big (5'11) but hes a playmaker. he hasnt garnered much interest on the market and I think the 'Hawks should at least bring him in for a visit to guage his interest and value. still young at age 25, and one of the best corners on the market

Pete still hasnt added that "playmaker" on offense, I wonder who hes looking at in the draft

Flynn is going to visit Miami before deciding to sign with either the Seahawks or the Dolphins, apparently. The Fins are apparently lowballing him contract-wise and banking on him wanted to play in Philbin's offense again.

im really surprised at how slow the LB market has been. If the seahawks could get Lofton at MLB and either Woodyard or Henderson at OLB, their D would be set BEFORE the draft (which means they can go BPA route and shouldnt feel pressure to draft for need instead of ability) through in Wimbley at LEO and Porter at CB if the price is right, and you have one hell of a defense

Has anybody seen anything about the market for RB Mike Tolbert. Hed be a great backup power runner to lynch if the price was right

Jason Jones is a HUGE addition. He's a rough assignment for interior offensive lineman and can battle RT's on the edge too. Brock and Hargrove's roles were both filled with one signing. The fact that he's so young too, I mean he could blow up.

I watched video of him playing DE and looked like he just got stuffed over and over. He looked very disruptive coming up the middle though. With our HYBRID defense, he can play multiple positions and that excites me. If he does well, we need to make sure we sign in BEFORE the season ends!

another CB the seahawks should take a look at is former Bears CB Zach Bowman. He didnt play much last year, but has good size (6'1) good hands (had 6 picks 2 years ago) and is pretty young (just turned 27). Should be able to get him for cheap if CB depth is an issue.

Totally agree on Manning. He went to school @ Tennessee. His wife is from Memphis. The team nearly made it to the playoffs even though Chris Johnson decided to have the worst year of his career. Why wouldn't he go there?

And I tend to agree that Hasselbeck will then end up in SF or possibly (like someone said above) Cleveland.

GREAT signing in Matt Flynn. not much guranteed money, and him choosing seattle over miami shows hes ready to win.

Seahawks had about 30 million to spend before signing Flynn and Jones, so they should have about 18 million still to spend. Set aside 3 million for the draft picks and UDFA's and there is still 13 million to spend, if the seahawks choose to do so.

Heres some players out on the market still who could garner some interest from seattle and be possible signings:
MLB Curtis Lofton 4years 20 million (there hasnt been much of a market for LBs at all this season, so he should come relatively cheap for someone of his skill set)
OLB Wesley Woodyard 3 years 9 million (good young fast OLB, fits the mold of what Pete Carroll is looking for at OLB)
CB Corey Graham 2 years 3 million (good special teams corner who has size)
resign DT Anthony Hargrove 1 year 1.5 million (good depth DT who played well last year)
RB Mike Tolbert (maybe, if price is right) 1 year 4 million (hasnt drawn much attention as a free agent, would be the perfect bruiser back complement to Lynch. seahawks still need a speed back, but that can be addresed in the draft)
DE Kameron Wimbley (maybe if price is right) 1 year 3 million (very good pass rushing DE/OLB who would provide depth at DE spot)
DT Amobi Okoye(if price is right) 2 years 4 million (provide more depth at DT, solid pass rusher)
G Chris Kemoatu1 year 1 million (provide depth at OG)
T Marcus McNeil1 year 2 million (provide depth at T, low risk high reward signing)

DRAFT 2012:
#12 and future 4th trade to CIN for #21, #84, #116, #148 , #158 and #211
#21: DE Courtney Upshaw ALABAMA (pass rushing LEO DE seattle needs)
#43: RB Lamar Miller MIAMI (extremly fast RB with good size.reminds alot of scouts of Lesean McCoy. absolute steal at this point)
#76: DE Chandler Jones SYRACUSE (more pass rushing help for Seattle, Jones is extremly underrated)
#84: OLB Lavonte David NEBRASKA (underrated OLB that will help shore up seattles LB corps)
#106 QB Brock Orsweiler ARIZONA ST (seattle loves this QB and he might not be here at this point, but his stock has been slipping a little. even with the signing of Flynn drafting a QB is still a good choice)
#116 TE Ladarius Green LOUISIANA LAFAYETTE (freakishly athletic TE who could is another good target for Flynn)
#148 SS George Iloka BOISE STATE (another huge safety to provide seattle with depth)
#158 WR Dwight Jones UNC (should be drafted way higher based on his skill, but Jones's stock has been slipping since the combine where he ran a slow 40 (4.55) but has good size (6'4) and good hands)
#170 CB Brandon Hardin OREGON STATE (this guy is extremly talented but has been flying under the radar because he sat out most of 2011 season with an injury. has fantastic size (6'3) and good ball skills for a DB)
#208 OLB Darius Fleming ND (good fast OLB who under produced in college)

Not bad, but I'd like a veteran guard better then any of the free agents you have out there. Mike Tolbert is a waste to me. I'd rather get a RB for less than a million a year in the draft then pay Tolbert 4 million.

Lastly after this video I'm not sure I'm sold on Upshaw. I know it's just one game, but I really don't see him getting off the line very fast, and he get's beat quite a bit. He also doesn't seem like Leo at all. Of course LSU is running the ball quite a bit so he's playing a gap assignment for the most part (even plays some LB), but I'm not sure if he's the guy I thought he was. I just don't see the necessary football speed to be a pass rusher in the NFL.

Really good video though. Take what you can out of it, but I'm not that great at scouting DE's.

yea but i think Miller is going to be a very special talent in the NFL. Is there any good FA Guards available for Seattle as of now? and i would almost gurantee that seattle will trade back in the draft, they are so good making picks in rounds 4-7 count that the more picks they have there, the better. they just keep taking guys that other teams miss

The only way i could not see Seattle trading down was if they were so enamored with one player that they had to take him there, or if Claiborne/Blackmon somehow slips to them. I do think Upshaw will be available in the Earlys 20's and if seattle still doesnt have a MLB by the draft id go with Kendricks in rds 2-3.

another RB that could interest seattle is Benjarvus Green Ellis or Ryan Grant. they should come a little cheaper than Tolbert.

also why is Carolina interested in Tolbert? if he signed there would that make Stewart expendable? would be a great pickup for seattle if traded or let go

The Jason Jones signing doesn't make much sense to me. I am left scratching my head after this signing. We gave him a one year "Show me what you got" contract, but I just don't see his role on this team. He is an adequate DE with good moves and mediocre speed. He plays with good leverage, so a 3 technique makes sense, but we have Mebane for that. I love adding depth, but I feel we need a true pass rusher. Maybe someone like Kam Wimbely who could be a starting DE opposite of Big Red. Don't get me wrong, it is a low risk, high reward type deal, but the resources could have been better utilized in my opinion.

It's just a cheap guys low risk high reward move. We have to spend so much of our cap anyways this year, but we don't want to be giving the wrong guy a big deal.

That's why the Mario deal was stupid. If we signed him we'd be good for the next 2 years, but then when we started having to sign our young secondary we wouldn't be able to sign everyone.

I like it. Interior pass rush is the point for Jason Jones. If it doesn't pan out don't re-sign him.

He's not gonna play DE. He's gonna be a 3rd down pass rusher. Branch will be the run stuffer, but isn't a great pass rusher. We brought Jones in to help Mebane, and to also disrupt upfront. It's good for Jones because I personally feel he isn't gonna be an every down kind of player. I fersonally feel it's a great fit and perfect for us

Jason Jones was rated the #1 pass rushing DT in the NFL in 2010 by Profootballfocus and like #20 run defender. The guy is hell for interior lineman to try to block. Pete Carroll's defense calls for penetration from the 3 tech spot and Jones is the best in the NFL according to at least one stat. He's a DT first with the versatility to swing outside. Also he's only 25. His best football may very well be in front of him.

FYI Mebane played from the 1 tech spot last season, occupying two gaps while Branch played 3 tech on most downs. Hargrove and McDonald played a lot of 3 tech too on passing downs. Jones will likely take all of their snaps and get some run on the outside too spelling Red.

Put it this way, on obvious passing downs, offenses are going to have somebody to fear coming up the middle now where they did not before. That makes everybody better.

He is one of those guys that Pete can tinker with i know his stats don't show much but the Titans forced him to play DE when he is more of a DT and he can get after the QB which Mebane wasn't really good at. It is a great move and a very under rated one if he can stay healthy.

future 4th round pick 2013 to CAR for RB Johnathan Stewart and a 2012 6th.

Seattle would get the compliment for Lynch who is also a great reciever. Seattle could still choose to adress the speed RB spot in the draft (miller, wilson, hillman, james) and has the best stable of RB's in the league

just a thought, since green ellis signed with the Bengals, would the Pats be interested in trading up if Richardson was available at 12? The Pats have a TON of draft picks and seattle would surely benifit from the trade!

But there was a catch to Williams’ performance last season. He played on an ankle that was originally injured during training camp, bothered him through the first three months of the season – when he also was sidelined with by a concussion and a hamstring injury – and finally gave out on the December afternoon in Chicago.

That’s why you’ll find Williams at Virginia Mason Athletic Center every week day, continuing the rehabilitation process that followed the surgery to place a plate and four screws on the fracture in his left leg.

“I’m just going through the process of getting back,” Williams said. “This is a different process. Being injured is a lot different from the other road I took to get back. But it’s still the same approach to having a good offseason.”

...

“Everybody has a different perception on how they look at things,” he said. “I’m still not satisfied. I have three regular-season touchdowns (in two seasons with the Seahawks). So I look at it like I’ve haven’t done anything yet. I look at 2010 as that was a start.

“What I’m used to, I have yet to accomplish in this league. The expectations I have for myself have yet to be achieved in this league. Until I get a 1,000-yard, eight-plus touchdown season, I have not reached the bar – and that would be the bottom of the bar.”

Usually you can't trust what a GM or a Coach says but you can tell the way the LB's are going in FA that this is the truth.

Maybe it has been a pretty weak class for LB's but in the last 2 drafts only 3 have been taken in the 1st round only 1 last draft.

I think the Hawks have a DE in mind and if he is still there at 12 they will take him. My gut tells me there is a 80% chance they will trade down and pick up another 2nd round pick.

If we do have 3 picks in the first 2 rounds i could see DE, LB, and TE being drafted. I think they will wait on a guard, RB, WR until the later rounds, unless one player that is high on their draft board is available.

I think Nick Perry and Whitney Mercilus will still be available if the hawks drop 8- 10 spots. They are not to shabby.

Also if the hawks wait until the 3rd-4th round they could get Jared Crick. He was a stud going into this season until he got hurt.

Would not be against drafting Coby Fleener if the Hawks do trade down. The coach really wants a 2 TE set. Fleener and Miller would be lethal.

Lumpkin will be cut after Pre-Season unless he tears it up.

I like Lumpkin.

I do aswell he might suprise some of you. This was quoted in the link! " Lumpkin was originally a highly recruited tailback - 2nd only to Reggie Bush in 2003 rankings"

The dude is an ***-clown. No need to even entertain the thought of letting that poison anywhere near our club.

No way, the guy is a slug on the football field and off of it. He's a product of the system that won two Super Bowls. Now that he's off the Giants, his career is over.
